Women's empowerment is the process of empowering women.
Empowerment means accepting and allowing people (women) who are on the outside of the decision-making process into it.
People are empowered when they are able to access the opportunities available to them without limitations and restrictions in education, profession and lifestyle. Feeling entitled to make your own decisions creates a sense of empowerment.
Empowerment includes the action of raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy, and training. Women's empowerment is all about allowing women to make life-determining decisions through the different problems in society. Empowerment stems from self-respect. Furthermore, one must acquire empowerment themselves rather than have it given to them by an external party.
Women's economic empowerment
Refers to the ability for women to enjoy their right to control and benefit from the resources, assets, income and their own time, as well as the ability to manage risk and improve their economic status and well-being.
While gender empowerment refers to people of any gender, stressing the distinction between biological and gender as a role.
Women's empowerment and achieving gender equality is essential for our society to ensure the sustainable development of the country. It is widely believed that, the full participation of both men and women is critical for development. Only acknowledging men's participation will not be beneficial to sustainable development. In the context of women and development, empowerment must include more choices for women to make on their own.
Without gender equality and empowerment, the country could not be just, and social change wouldn't occur. Therefore, women's empowerment plays a huge role in development and is one of the significant contributions of development.
